Out with the old, in with the new ! My next WIP, converting the Tamy F4U-1 Birdcage into the F4U-@ night fighter. Now it won't be for a week or two but I wanted you all to know what I'm up to. The bench is cleared and somewhat organized..........Harv

OWL Models of Czech Republic makes some lovely brass PE Radalt Antennae.

 

Which squadron/ markings have you decided on? Me curious. I got the Eduard Brassin tyres with the Firestone tread but they're slated for a future build.

Dutik and Harv, a word of caution: The LSM radome was designed for the Revell kit which has a thicker wing cross section. You will need to do some significant gap filling where the radome wraps around the leading edge. Also, i found the radome to be sort of..... sticky after i cut it from the casting block. It's as if the resin hadn't fully cured yet. I eventually "sealed up" this sticky area with multiple brushed-on coats of Future.

David, thanks. If you noticed the little blue "box" top left, they are printed "T" antenna, that Danny (Vanndy) sent me. We will see what comes of the radome to wing fit......Harv
